Open Educational Resources Across the Educational Landscape: Centering Quality and Equity
This two-day workshop will focus on OER resources as these resources are free of cost and fall under the creative commons open license. During this workshop, participants will identify quality OER across the educational landscape, apply the BranchED OER Equity Rubric as a tool for evaluating OER in a score norm activity, and discuss ideas of how to modify curriculum while ensuring fidelity and standards alignment. Participants can earn a digital badge at the successful completion of the score norm which they can share across their digital networks.
